Do your movies reflect your childhood? Your interests? Movies that touched your heart and soul? Movies that made you laugh? What made the cut?
Here's mine, in no particular order.
Whether it's one-liners that make me laugh or the edge-of-my-seat intensity of Quint's (true) story of the U.S.S. Indianapolis, Jaws is a must-see.
2. Life is Beautiful
I love, love, love this movie. It makes me laugh and cry. If you haven't seen this film, add it to your queue...and watch it in Italian with the subtitles. It really is a beautiful film and one you will never forget.
3. The Way We Were
Ka-ka-ka-Katie! You can't help but get pulled into this classic love story of opposites who attract, Katie and Hubbell. Barbra Streisand and Robert Redford at their finest.
4. Sex and the City
Like any Sex and the City fan, I waited patiently for my ladies to make it to the big screen...and they did not disappoint...at least in the first movie.
5. Before Sunset
This one is the second installment of the Ethan Hawke/Julie Delpy trilogy about a Jesse and Celine, strangers who met on a train to Vienna in the first film, nine years earlier. What I like most about this is the fact that it's a film of conversation. It's smart. It's real. It's honest. And it's set in Paris...it feeds the wanderlust.
So those are mine. What are your favorites?
